Here's the Hannibal Web Series NBC Cooked Up from the Show's Axed Fourth Episode (VIDEO)

NBC took a bite out of Hannibal last week when, at the request of show creator Bryan Fuller, the network decided to pull Episode 4 from its schedule because of content that Fuller deemed insensitive in the wake of tragic events that occurred at the Boston Marathon and in Newtown, Connecticut. The episode, "Ceuf," was originally scheduled to air tonight, but NBC will jump straight into Episode 5 instead. 

Some questions that might be on your mind: But what about continuity? How will I know what's going on? What's the dealarooni, Buster Brown? Well, both Fuller and NBC insist that continuity won't be an issue, but admit that the episode contains some important character developments, particularly between Hannibal and Abigail. 

To make sure viewers are able to keep up with the series, NBC and Fuller have turned "Ceuf" into a six-part web series highlighting the important stuff that you can't miss. And they're all available now! So eat 'em up before you tune in tonight.

Anyone else still mad (well I'm sorry but I am still frustrated) that Bryan Fuller took away our weekly dose of Hannibal? :(

Thanks, as usual (and I'm not directing this specifically at TV.com) for giving me the chance to watch something then taking it away because of where I am currently situated.

For those with zero options, I have, ahem, 'heard' you can find both episodes if you search.

Never thought I'd say it but Larry is killing this show. His ridiculous tirades about using the alternate womens' toilet and "...YOU DIDN'T JUST SAY THAT TO ME!.." bollox are cringe worthy. One can only assume the latter was thought as clever writing; to detract viewers from realising this is just another show with a one trick pony expert, who solves pretty much everything but that they'd be lost without the seasoned leader and drone bot gang. The show could've gained kudos by having him actually being stood up to but instead we get the kowtow.
Crawford's a 2D bluster and bully cop character of little input. And to make matters worse now, his, real and, onscreen wife is in it with scenes that are so stale. The convo' between the two in bed was like watching two people who'd just met at acting school being asked to 'intelligently' discuss their marriage and lives together. There was no emotion whatsoever present or feeling they were or had ever been connected. Two people waking in fright after a drunk one night stand would elicit more nuance of togetherness. It was simply far too detached.
Mikkelsen's suave Hannibal in his classically styled office remain a joy to behold - though sadly, a lone one. However, I keep expecting to see a reveal on this show where Hannibal's exposed as a secretly simple burger and cheese chips fan.
In reality, Mikkelsen could no doubt end up promoting and/or starring on a cooking show like Kitchen Nightmares, should this get canned, and have the network hit the horror trifecta.

So what's the point of axing it when you are going to show it online?

NBC can suck it. I won't watch another episode of Hannibal until I see the cancelled one. I'm guessing many people will do the same. I won't watch a cannibalized version. We have to teach NBC a lesson. Then again, the show's ratings are not so good, so watching it on NBC's website or Youtube could save it. I'm conflicted. Screw NBC for creating this mess.
Bastards.

The cancelled one was aired outside the US so if you really want to see it, it should be on any free streaming tv site that posts links of Hannibal episodes.

If you wanna wait until monday, I heard the original full 4th episode will air in sweden uncensored, and undoubtedly end up on the internetz somewhere.

Kinda funny however that US ppl always complain about China censoring, when they censor sooooo much themselves

The network claims by airing the episodes out of order no plot critical information will be missed. Then it starts episode 5 showing what happened before, using scenes from the pulled episode 4 interspersed throughout... Let's give a big slow clap to the morons who didn't bother editing the episode before it aired or the asses who have no concept of continuity.

They assumed/hoped everyone or most of the people who watch the show couldn't wait to see the full episode 4 and saw the cannibalized version. Clueless idiots.

Answer (c) They are both silly.

Oh the question aha, well that was. "Is it more likely to offend those viewers bwho are family & friends of the victims by (A)screening a show that discusses terrorism following a 'terrorist event' where 3 people were killed, or (B)would a network offend more viewers who are friends and family of serial killer victims by running a show that glamourises serial killers or (C) Are both of the preceding notions silly because serial killers and terrorist injure and/or maim so few americans, more people get struck by lightening each year than are victimised by either type of perp."

Now if networks made shows about medical misadventure (particularly prescription error) which kills more than three thouand americans a month, maybe that could use some sensitivity. But wait! Shows like House or any of the myriad mediacal oriented soaps do broadcast shows with those plots, frequently displaying crass insensitivity as they duck n weave promoting outrageous rationalisations to excuse the Dr/Medical Institution which is frequently the 'hero' of the particular TV series.
But that sort of oxymoronic behaviour is innate in a culture which claims to be the home of free speech, yet routinely censors anything which could be construed to question the artifical values underpinning it.

WOW! I have cable. I pay for it so I can watch channels like NBC. Why the hell is it illegal to watch shows online and not on my own TV? "Licensing rights" is not a valid excuse when I can view it legally on one medium and not another.

Makes me think that the censoring habits in the US will never die off. Even if it's self-censoring, like in this case. There always has to be someone who takes it upon themself to decide what is inappropriate, shocking, or controversial for the others. Because you know, every work of fiction clearly illustrates the real life happenings, and heavens forbid there be the slightest of allusions included - intentional or not.
At times this kind of tactic seems akin to closing one's eyes and covering one's ears - since that makes bad things go away, right? And that poor little viewer might have their mood spoiled, can't have that.

It's not "Ceuf" but "Oeuf", wish means "egg" in french, O and E mix into a Œ, people at NBC are dumb.

this is getting more and more stupid with every single move.. well, with NBC, you cannot expect less of that.. the reasonable action would be making the entire episode available online -and let the adults decide what is good or bad for them-, but instead they decided to put a cropped version of it.. as this was not stupid enough, it is put in six small pieces (so that NBC would increase the number of hits on the page and average time spent on site, there would be no other reason for this).. this whole "I am too cautious to air something that can be maybe slightly contraversial (even if it is absolutely fictional) but I still want to profit as much as I can over what's left of it" attitude is really ridiculous and frustrating..

The episode is called "Entrée", which means "appetizer" not "Ceuf", whatever that means... btw, that sounds like OEUF! Not Ceuf. This whole season seems to be a 13 service dinner.
It's kinda pathetic how Americans and their Tv shows are utterly clueless when it comes to write something in french, mostly titles.
1st episode of Hannibal, they forgot the accent on apéritif.
At least they got the other ones right.... for now.
Apéritif, Amuse-Bouche, Potage, Entrée, Coquilles, Sorbet,...

I'll be watching both episodes tonight.

According the show's home page, episode 4 is titled "Ceuf." The episode entitled "Entree" is the 6 episode.The ceuf is a variation of the spelling of oeuf, which is actually spelt with special characters that combine the c and the e.
Reply
Flag
What? No! There's no "variation", Oeuf is oeuf, it means Egg and that's it!!!
You may see sometimes œuf, "œ" = "oe", which is STILL oeuf, but nobody use this character.
Your delusions are irrelevant. I'm a Québecois and I know my language.
American TV shows are always AWFUL when they try french in their title.
They forget accents, they do not use the right gender, because all words in french are either masculine or feminine.
Google for godsake. It's not that hard!
Sorry I shouldn't say that because that's EXACTLY what Sons of Anarchy did for that last season ending with their title "J'ai obtenu cette" which means nothing in french, there's a word missing at the end.
What they tried to do was "google translate" Opie's "I Got This!". The "real" french of this expressions doesn't exist, the nearest possible would be "Je l'ai!"

And no, the webseries seems to be called "Ceuf", which means absolutely NOTHING, but the real episode title is Entrée, next episode, the one from tonight in the USA is Coquilles.

Okay, where to start here...

1. It's not "my" delusion. It's what the show has said - and if you do a google search on ceuf you'll find exactly what I said.
2. Quebecois French and Parisian French have their differences. The French used here is likely not Quebecois
3. The webseries and the 4th episode, is titled "œuf" which is sometimes being spelt "ceuf." This may be due to Bryan Fuller's mistake, but it's still the title. The 5th episode is titled "Coquilles," and the 6th episode is "Entrée." Google the show before you start attacking people's comments and you can find all of this information

What's even more puzzling is that Bryan Fuller himself said Ceuf. What the heck is going on? I thought there would be an "official" change to the right spelling, and there isn't. And for those saying it absolutely doesn't matter, well okay it's not the biggest deal ever, but all the episode titles are linked by their food/dining course theme, what's the point of doing a kind of play on words if they're not going to get the words right?
Also, sorry, but the real episode title is not Entree, that's next episode.

It's called "Ceuf" whether it's wrong or not. That's how NBC spell it. He can't just decide that he wants to change the title of the episode because he feels it's wrong.

I don't agree with not showing it but I can deal with it seeing as they're releasing webisodes, at least I thought I could. when I assumed I could watch them. They aren't airing the episode in Canada, YET Canadians can't watch NBC videos. So if you're american you can watch the webisodes, if you're European you can watch the actual episode, but if you're Canadian then you get the shaft. I loved you, Bryan Fuller, why would you betray me? WHYYYYYYY?!?!?!

Um, unless someone is a native French speaker or learned even a bit of French, why would anyone know that? I studied French and lived in France for a while, but that's the only way I knew what oeuf means or the proper way to spell it. I'm not gonna fault anyone for not knowing how to spell egg in French.

But you could fault someone for not checking his facts (and in this case the title) before publishing an article, which also means checking the spelling of foreign words one doesn't know the meaning of but has to use several times.

Before you fault the writer of the article go to NBC. They spelled in Ceuf. So the title IS Ceuf. It's not the article writer's fault.

I think the best thing they could have done is to put the whole episode up, and put these fragmented videos up as well. That way, people could make an informed decision about whether or not they want to watch the whole episode, so people who don't want to miss a second of the episode won't have to, and people who don't want to watch it based on the episode's description won't miss the character development.

Just one day, I always wonder if just a couple strong minded individuals would stand up and just air what's done and stand by that it's JUST a tv show. I'm sure the so called controversial scenes are no worse than what's been aired before on network TV. But that's the way it is sadly. Like if I were even personally affected by a tragedy, I guarantee the LAST thing I'd be concerned about is how some TV show is portraying things.
